How do I tighten up my stitches?

I've tried knitting a few different sweaters, but have to tear them apart. Maybe I have the wrong type yarn, but I knit a swatch and measure (I have a little metal gadget with the inches, etc) and though the swatch seems to be alright, after I'm knitting for a while it seems loose, and I can't seem to get the tension right as the stockinette side looks uneven and holey. Very stretchy also. I do love the soft yarns; the types I have are JoyDK, Nako Calico, and Cascade Ultra Pima. Not sure about the grams and yardage because they seem to be English or other countries yarns.
